The drawer at the bottom of the refrigerator is meant for storing plant products. Here is where all vegetables and fruits should be stored in any refrigerator. Plant products are highly perishable. The bottom drawer has a favorable humidity to preserve plant products longer than expected.
Another reason that the bottom drawer is used for storing plant products is to separate other food products from plant products. Food products can be contaminated by plant products, especially highly perishable food products. Onions, for example, cannot be stored next to milk and milk products in a refrigerator. Onions will catalyze fermentation of milk and it will rot very fast.
The makeup of most plant products is irregular. Therefore, another reason for storing plant products in the bottom drawer of a refrigerator is that these products cannot be arranged in the other drawers. The bottom drawer is designed like a pouch and is bigger than the other drawers. This makes it easy to store products like leafy spinach which would not fit in any other drawer in a refrigerator.
